We are brave or crazy

Well, we have our RV back & in operational,order at least for now. We are making a trip from Oklahoma to Little Rock, AR this weekend, then plan to drive the Talimena trail on the way back. We are praying that this is the trip we have no vehicle trouble because sub freezing temperatures are predicted & we will have to winterized as soon as we get home.

When was the last time you had the RV maintenanced? Would be good to do a check-up before you leave.....hoses, belts, tune-up, etc.

Have a safe trip,

Rich

If we all worried about having vehicle trouble, well we probably would all just stay home. You have done the maintenance and had her checked out, so time to go. I think it was Jack Nicholson that said "Sell crazy someplace else, we are all stocked up". We are stocked up on it at our place, too.

Enjoy the trip.

Avoid the need to winterize. Keep on heading south.

Crazy?

Perhaps, crazy, but I don`t know what handicap you have. I am crazy, 77 years old, one eye, one leg an half sense solo and driving a 34 foot house around--get the kids off the sidewalk. Are you guys pulling a toad?
